Intake, digestibility, and passage of a commercially designed diet by two Propithecus species.
(Am J Primatol, 1999)
The digestibility and passage of an experimental diet was used to compare the digestive physiology of two Propithecus species: P. verreauxi and P. tattersalli. Though both animals have a similar feeding ecology, the captive ...
Relative growth of the limbs and trunk in sifakas: heterochronic, ecological, and functional considerations.
(Am J Phys Anthropol, 1993-12)
Limb, trunk, and body weight measurements were obtained for growth series of Milne-Edwards's diademed sifaka, Propithecus diadema edwardsi, and the golden-crowned sifaka, Propithecus tattersalli. Similar measures were obtained ...
Drinking from arboreal water sources by mantled howling monkeys (Alouatta palliata Gray).
(Folia Primatol (Basel), 1978)
Despite occasional trips to the ground and feeding in trees whose canopies touched the river, mantled howling monkeys were never seen to drink from any ground water. Drinking from arboreal cisterns was observed, but only ...
Plasma lipoproteins of free-ranging howling monkeys (Alouatta palliata).
(Comp Biochem Physiol B, 1987)
1. Plasma lipids and lipoproteins of free-ranging howling monkeys from Costa Rica (Alouatta palliata), aged 5 months to 23 years, were characterized. 2. High density lipoproteins were lipid-rich, similar to HDL2 of human ...
A coprological survey of parasites of wild mantled howling monkeys, Alouatta palliata palliata.
(J Wildl Dis, 1990-10)
Fecal samples from 155 mantled howling monkeys (Alouatta palliata palliata) examined at Centro Ecologico La Pacifica, Guanacaste Province, Costa Rica, revealed 75 (48%) had parasitic infections. A sampling of nine howling ...
Reproduction and population growth in free-ranging mantled howling monkeys.
(Am J Phys Anthropol, 1980-07)
Free-ranging mantled howling monkey (Alouatta palliata Gray) females experienced a regular estrus cycle averaging 16.3 days, demonstrated sexual skin changes, and participated in multiple matings before becoming pregnant. ...
Sexual selection and canine dimorphism in New World monkeys.
(Am J Phys Anthropol, 1988-11)
Social and ecological factors are important in shaping sexual dimorphism in Anthropoidea, but there is also a tendency for body-size dimorphism and canine dimorphism to increase with increased body size (Rensch's rule) (Rensch: ...
Field methods for capture and measurement of three monkey species in Costa Rica.
(Folia Primatol (Basel), 1991)
A total of 54 free-ranging monkeys were captured and marked in Santa Rosa National Park, Costa Rica, during May 1985, and an additional 17 were captured during March 1986. The animals were darted using a blowpipe or a CO2 ...
Morphometrics and growth in captive aye-ayes (Daubentonia madagascariensis).
